, they may not be in the city and county of san francisco but maybe going down to santa clara county. >> they've been rewarded with that, but there is a responsibility, absolutely, for center plate to do this but we think that the responsibility goes beyond that because these are jobs that unfortunately are very low wage and it's not only center plate that is ignoring the responsibilities we're focusing on, the giants won two world series in four years and our members have not had a wage increase in four years during that entire time which in our view is quite unconscionable. >> thank you very much. >> thank you, mr. casey, next speaker. >> thank you, mr. president. members of the bore, my name is christopher ball, i live at 1011 howard street, i wanted to bring your attention to -- i thought somebody would get that. the bicycle coalition has offered for your perusal on the website and i want to -- please note that 50 feet is the probable elevation of the whole impact of greenland melting. we can fix this, we know how much coal, oil and gas is burnt and so how much c02 we put into the atmosp

the schematic design part of the development agreement. the city has secured with mbs a vertical developer a 30 and a half million dollars federal grant. if everything is on track and on schedule for that grant hud is certainly watching and keeping track and the city and county is actively working on. and we can expend those valuable federal dollars so to that end your december 17th meeting you have for consideration the major phase approval and seem tick design and revital ization is a part and a predevelopment loan action and all of these are really critical actions august of 2014 and we can commencing on the vertical for approximately 500 units of which are complete replacement vacant parking lots by january of 2015 we do plan to have a meeting in the community on january 7th provided it works for your schedule and we've secured the facility. and that meeting would start to allow for community attendance at 4 p.m. so you will get more information from staff on that but just to mark your calendars for january 7th we'll do that in the bay view and that concludes my report thank you very much.
focus and we certainly hope the st. city can take over ownership of all the street lights for the repairs >> thank you. >> good afternoon. i'm executive director of liveable city. thank you for having this hearing. when we were working on the better street plan it was missing a piece it says someday we'll add those but it's an embarrassing failure the puc that coincident get it together it's great to hear about the street light policy. the sidewalks need to be lit. until you have standards you're not going to be be able to do the industries. but if the standards don't exist i encourage you to keep puc's feet to the fire so we can have is city sidewalk standards. the other thing you might want to look at the governs of the program. there was an audit when mr. kelly was director and both of those looked at the street light lighting responsibility to the department of public works. it could help because public works has most of the elements and the thing that hangs up is to get a lighting component done it's a different agency. so pg&e i'm public works is much better since

the city accountable for a reputation that won't go away. >> there is no cure for my cancer. >> mike cunningham has multiple myoloma. >> what's the reputation of fire station 5. >> a dump and a place to go get cancer at. >> there's a lot of colder guys that know if you work at that station long enough, there's a good pg chance you're going to come up with cancer. >> rick has gallbladder cancer. >> my life changed. it will never be the same. >> two veteran firefighters. both retired, both now fight narg lives. both spent time working at station 5 and they recognize the fact that firefighters are at a greater risk for cancer. but they want the is i to explore why station 5 has earned the unusual reputation as the cancer station. >> when you work at 5, you can't wait to get out and work at some other station. everyone knows a friend that died of cancer that at some point bourqued at station 5. >> i looked at him and i said your papy is coming home to die. >> she broke that news to her 8-year-old son jonah. her husband died in august of last year. two months after doctored diagnosed him
it and the resulting magnitude of the savings. ask whether this is consistent with the city goal of transit-first? and finally, request that you the board consider our information, as well as the significant public support for our position if we shouldn't rather be instead working together to save the no. 3 jackson and increase ridership? so let me describe our community of 60 square blocks, consisting of portions of pacific and presidio heights, transected by the no. 3 jackson. we are 1500 regular riders getting on and off the no. 3 jackson in this area. we do 4,000 round-trips per week, 650 of these round-trips are within our community. 28% of our ridership is greater than 65 years of age. we have students and staff at nine local schools. we have tourists staying at three local hotels. we feel that it is important for us to all of us to use the no. 3. the level of importance is reflected by the petition and emails that you have received recently. all of us support muni and all of us would like to continue riding the no. 3 jackson. thank you. >> thank you, next speaker. >> anne long.
to deliver to the city. my question is really -- i don't know, this took a long time to get here and i'm glad that we're here and we're going to actually have good meters throughout the city because most of the city now still has coin operated meters and it's really -- it makes it harder for people to pay. i know that when you transition to the credit card meters and the remote reloading meters, you end up increasing meter revenue and decrease ticket revenue and that's a positive thing. people can decide that they're going to park and pay and they know what they're going the pay and they don't have to have sort of the anger that people -- and the surprise that people get when they get hit with the 75 or 90 dollar ticket, so i think this is long overdue, i'm glad that all of the meters, the coin meters as well as the original generation of credit card meters which have some issues are all going to be replaced with new technology. it's going the make it easier for people to park at meters, they're going to be able to quickly pay, they're not going to have to remember to carry quarters with them
to another person. and we know what's down the road. this city and housing authority needs a state and federal compliance officer to be able to go on the sites where the construction is being done and make sure the construction is right and the resident are protected that local hiring and that's something we don't have a compliance office state certified. also, we want to talk about the hardships that tenant in public housing are having. as you know there's a new situation called rad it's dealing with residents and the reenvisioning. thank you you want to come up here and talk. it's role getting rid of low income resident and that's something that we really need to look into you need to be more connected with other agencies in the city because you do take care of people and we're people. thank you >> (clapping) and a sorry if i don't have your card but please. >> yes hi, i'm ms. chan letter and please forgive me i'm not political correct i've been a community activist for thirty years i can go on and on i've been living here for 10 years. i'm really, really discouraged. we've been
own. in the city. it's due. the tree. i would win use. ch. too much. long haul i can get into chemical and moon on the one teaching though. going to play in tn twenty two coaching with i will call me out. she teaches joking. attention. two people to dream to fly to what she wanted cool . don't hold to a deal. also when you are. she teaches simple each with you he says. it was cool fun. the reports and directs him to actually treat since i went to keystone. see you soon she teaches was she. tai ti the film could be withheld he appealed to the goldfields. last weekend with monday off. i love to know what they did not see who'll true local shops the heavy hand of his youthful new tool of choice yes we all chatted and got the whole system people the only option is still sore on his lap while before the assault vehicle that could mean joke on his door to that huge lock folder and suddenly there he said the next year. it's definitely going to sound off about. she teach me cool fun you can see him go. i feel so should you care. leave me a box until she got pt. in the team. our chicago temple
volunteer work. some of us get paid for it, some of us don't and now that you can't park in the city hall lot, even if you are commissioners, then you understand some of that. and my third point is the changing meter regs will not bring more parking. i complained during this committee about otis street there were so many disabled placards that you couldn't park. but when they changed it it was all city trucks and cars that parked there. so i don't think that that will increase parking in spite of your very nice video. there is nothing like that will increase the parking. it will make it harder for people with disabilities. i wanted you to know those things. >> thank you, miss hale. next item, then, consent calendar. >> seeing no other person who wishes to address you on this matter, moving on to the citizen consent calendar. these items are considered routine and will be acted on one vote unless a member of the board or public wishs it severed. item 10.1 j, that item is now only an establishment of a tow-away, no stopping time on mission on 16th -- on mission street on 24th. >> mot
